IntroLab in Belgrade offers a range of medical tests, including the Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) test. This important test provides insights into your health status.

What is the ESR Test?

The ESR test measures how quickly red blood cells settle in a blood sample over an hour. This rate can point to inflammation in the body.

The ESR test is used broadly, not for diagnosing specific conditions, but for detecting and monitoring inflammation, infections, autoimmune diseases, and some cancers.

A high ESR level may indicate inflammation or a pathological condition. While ESR is a valuable indicator, it’s one of several factors used in a health assessment. Other tests and symptoms are essential for a complete diagnosis. The ESR test is especially useful in tracking the progression of conditions and the effectiveness of treatments, alongside other medical evaluations.

Why undergo an Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) test?

The ESR test is commonly done for routine health screenings or when there are indications of bodily inflammation. It’s recommended when experiencing symptoms like:

  • Unexplained fever or infection indicators
  • General symptoms such as weight loss, fatigue, headaches, or muscle pain
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Pain in the chest or abdomen
  • Signs suggesting autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Symptoms pointing to a possible malignancy

Additionally, the test is valuable in tracking the progression or treatment response of inflammatory diseases, notably in conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.

Preparing for the test

Generally, no special preparation is needed for the ESR test, but inform your doctor about any current medications, as they might influence the results.
